but, but, but....

"After all legal options had been exhausted, the chance discovery of a piece of Azaria's clothing in an area full of dingo lairs led to Lindy Chamberlain's release from prison, on "compassionate grounds." She was later exonerated of all charges. While the case is officially unsolved, the report of a dingo attack is generally accepted. Recent deadly dingo attacks in other areas of Australia have strengthened the case for the dingo theory."

I don't think she did it, but something else happened...And dingoes don't usually bite unless provoked...they certainly wouldn't go into a zipped up tent!

My goal with this thread was to write out a somewhat comprehensive city guide for LA because I think people that get to travel and write about it have the best jobs ever. But now I realize that it's actually a lot of work and I'm lazy as hell. :lol:

So instead, I will just include a list of places you should check out if you're in town.

The Original Farmers Market (off of 3rd/Fairfax) - I love coming here for lunch. They have so many options. Whatever cuisine you're in the mood for, they most likely have it. My favorite is Sinapore's Banana Leaf. It's right next to The Grove so you could walk around, go shopping, or see a movie after.

Venice Beach - This has more of a hippie/bohemian vibe compared to other LA beaches. Go here if you want to be entertained! They have palm readers, street performers, arts & crafts vendors, bongo players, etc. It's great for people watching. Venice has some good bookstores too. Check out Small World Books and Equator Books. After, stop for tea and dessert at Jin Patisserie.

Walt Disney Concert Hall - Gorgeous! The interior is amazing too! I feel lucky that I got to see Terry Riley's organ recital here. If you can't attend one of the concerts, I highly recommend that you stop by anyway for a self-guided tour.

Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre - The best comedy in LA! Most shows are $5-$8 and some are free even. They teach improv and sketch writing classes here too.

Silent Movie Theatre – So much more than just silent films! If you’re a movie lover, this place is a must! That is all.

Ah, see! I'm tired of doing this already. :roll:

Thought this area could use some love... well if you come to Portland, OR you can eat real cheap: http://www.foodcartsportland.com/ and more than likely not get poisoned :lol: There are city blocks full of carts here 8) When you are done eating you can go look at the trees and stuff :P

(* I am not from here so I consider this locale bereft of any culture)

If you want to venture outside of the city limits into my town you might want to watch out for all the vicious crimminals lurking in the L.O.

http://www.lakeoswegoreview.com/news/story.php?story_id=126644987809249900

Just a sampling of the horrible crimes going on (it is like I live in tha hood ! )

2/9/10 4:20 p.m. A woman was defrauded of checks totaling $2,037 by a doctor. However, an officer pointed out that the theft took place 11 years ago and the statute of limitations had run out.

2/11/10 1:03 p.m. A condo owner has been the target of pinecones thrown by a neighbor.

2/12/10 6:42 p.m. A male wearing black clothing was staggering onto the roadway at Boones Ferry and Reese roads. He was urged to stay on the sidewalk.

2/13/10 7:44 p.m. A woman clad only in her underwear refused to go inside, even though she admitted to being cold.

I would totally show you the intresting stuff the guidebooks leave out 8) Like the bum/transient/loon who has dyed himself blue (think along the lines of a smurf). He started out with just his scraggly white bum beard but now he wears all blue sweats and his skin is blue too ! Incase you are in downtown Portland he is at the Nordstoms outdoor coffee bar almost everyday; you can't miss him :wink:
